When things fall into place you can suddenly understand something that you didn’t understand before. I aim for this experience in the studio and when something works I use it to inform the next choice, my next process.
I like to think of my paintings as places to inhabit – little spaces that reference interiors, natural forms or the incidental scratching and blemishes found in the urban landscape. I’m after a balance – or my own notion of a satisfying balance which might mean an off - kilter or even tenuous relationship between a colour or a form or a mark which creates a tension that satisfies in some way. Either way, the condition is that it must always be a surprising result.
